It’s good that you have the screwdriver bit, that’s one I’m missing for my set. If the part numbers in the set start with M, that means that the set is 9/32” drive. The spinner that you need is an M-4. It looks to me as if the ratchet is stamped with a G which would mean that it was made in 1945. I believe that was the final year that Snap-on produced the 9/32” drive tools. I ran across three 9/32” drive flex handles recently at an estate sale. I used two of them in my 9/32” sets but have an extra if you would like to add it to your set. They were all made in 1945. The bottom one in the picture is the extra.
